About me

Acknowledging that you need to talk to someone else other than a family member or a friend is the first step, which can be very challenging. I understand it takes courage to share your vulnerable parts with someone you don’t know but I also believe that it can be a very powerful and life changing experience. In my work, I provide a space, where you can discover things about yourself you perhaps haven’t been aware of before. I am passionate about connecting with an inner child we sometimes dismiss or forget about due to the demands and responsibilities that life brings. Sometimes we take responsibility for others and forget about our own needs.

As a result we feel anxious, and depressed. I strongly believe that once you are in touch with yourself, you can gain a better understanding of your needs and you can build healthier relationships with others.

Therapeutic relationships are key in my approach. I bring warmth, empathy, and a sense of humour. I can be challenging when necessary, whilst being supportive and compassionate.

I will work alongside you to understand, and support you, and actively engage with your concerns, and worries. My goal is to guide you to get to know yourself better; to learn self acceptance, love, and how to be kinder to yourself in order to live a more fulfilling life.

I am a member of our registered body United Kingdom Association for Transactional Analysis. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and psychotherapy and I speak fluent Polish and English.
